I found these photos a couple of days ago, nestled among many other long-forgotten files saved on an old hard drive. They were taken in the months leading up to October 16th of last year, when Taylor and I got married. We didn't know then where we'd be now, but we were excited to discover where our lives together would lead us. These photos take me back to those moments: moments when I doubted I'd ever love another human being as much as I loved him. I was right, of course, but I didn't know then how much I'd love him now. I love him differently and the same all at once. It may not make any sense, but then again, love never really has made much sense. It's crazy and psychotic and beautiful and dumb all at the same time. Love is love and that's that.

I'm excited for the CaLea of someday to look back on the CaLea of today; I wonder what she'll think, how she will have changed, and what she will have learned. I take pictures because they help me remember things. I write in my journal because it helps me remember things. And when the years have passed and I'm feeling a bit nostalgic, I can reflect upon the words I write and the photos I take and remember things I would have otherwise forgotten.

Remembering is important-- which means the photos I take, the words I write, and the ways I help myself remember are important too.
